I have always been a fan of DTS, but also i had my reservations, i thought it was too annoyingly loud at times. I had to protect my eardrums, in fact i always asked the manager about the sound format and if he said. DTS i bringed my earmuffs. But when i saw Jurassic Park 3 last year, i noticed that they lowered the volume. Before it was like 9 or 10, now is 6 to 7. I have to say thanks for DTS and the studios for making DTS a rousing sonic experience, but not an annoyingly loud one. Attack of the Clones was fantastic in DTS-ES, at volume 7!. Not annoying, just rousing.
